South Carolina TE Jared Cook is a draft prospect that I think would be a good fit for the Bills in terms of stretching the field and pushing the seam from that position. But after an impressive combine workout, it looks like two teams picking ahead of the Bills in round two have their eye on him as well.
According to the Middletown Journal, the Bengals and Browns, both with tight end position needs are enamored with Cook, who is has game breaking pass catching potential. He’s still got to work on his blocking, admitting that to me himself at the combine, but offers rare athleticism and sounds committed to get the blocking end of things down.
I thought he’d come off the board not long after Southern Miss’ Shawn Nelson in round two, but they might be neck and neck. I’m not sure either will be there for the Bills in the 2nd. Of course another weapon in the passing game is less pressing for Buffalo now after the acquisition of Terrell Owens.
